Asana Meditation – Day 3
In sitting upright and lengthening the spine, the breath has an opportunity to become balanced. A sloppy posture usually means a sloppy breath, a sloppy attitude, and a sloppy response to that which arises during meditation. An upright posture usually supports a poised mind and a poised attitude. From this place, you have greater freedom in responding to sensations in the body, emotions that present themselves, and thoughts that may appear.
Coming to meditation with the intention to support altitude and poise, as well as receptivity and awareness, supports a lovely mental posture. As we get comfortable in mind and body, then our emotions report ease. With comfort and ease, you have established proper asana and you are ready. Ready for what? All that may be revealed in the very next moment. And the next. And the next.
